Palette Visualisations

Palette Visualisations

Click to open the interactive image (not optimised for mobile browsers).

This art experiment for the Light and Sound Systems project is an alternative way of visualising the 64 x 64 palette colour combinations created in Elements 23112019 (2019). The interactive image runs in a web browser. The arrow keys can then be used to move around the colour space.

As you explore the space, the corresponding horizontal and vertical palettes are displayed as grids of lines. The location of each line is determined by the saturation and lightness values of its colour and the length of the line determined by its hue value.

The experiment is ongoing, so I will be adding to it over time.
